EU Parliament declines to fix EU-UK trade deal vote in protest

·1 min read

BRUSSELS, March 4 (Reuters) - The European Parliament declined on Thursday to set a date for its vote on the EU-UK trade deal in protest at what the European Union sees as Britain's unilateral changes to Northern Irish Brexit arrangements.

EU parliament group chiefs had been expected to set a March date for its vote at a meeting on Thursday. However, they did not do so after the British government extended a grace period for checks on food imports to Northern Ireland, a move Brussels said violated terms of Britain's divorce deal.
